New Mexico in Lambertville

A few weeks ago we were virtually transported to New Mexico. Not much makes us happier than the thought of New Mexico (except for actually being there). But this was pretty good. We spent four very full days shooting pictures for a new cookbook that our friend Andy will be publishing through his new publishing company, Leaf Storm Press. […]

ingredients of a good year

We love making things. This year, as we looked back on all the different work we did and also assessed the year with much gratitude, these pictures of ingredients made sense. They’re building blocks to a good meal, a good year, and to a new year. Elio even got involved by helping us stamp some of the envelopes to […]

A Kate and Guy How To: This Sunday

A few weeks ago Ian and Shelley, of The Farm Cooking School, asked us to teach a little class on food styling and photography. “OK, let’s do it!” we said. And suddenly it is happening this Sunday, Dec. 7! Are we ready? We are now. It’s going to be super fun and here’s why…  we will look […]

Kick-ass ice-cream

Where: The Bent Spoon, Princeton, NJ Who: Gabrielle Carbone and Matt Errico Why: Its their 10 year Anniversary this week! Go get some ice-cream. I am not sure if we have mentioned that we used to live in Santa Fe, NM, and Sicily, and New York, and, yes!, in Brooklyn too. But we have landed here […]

Another cookbook…

We photographed this book a while ago but still remember many of these delicious recipes. (I think we just made the Irish soda bread in March!) Here’s a sneak peek to get you […]

birthdays

We seem to know a lot of people who have birthdays in early April. Sometimes we get to make them cake. Birthday boy: Gordon Years around the sun: 28 Cake: Flourless chocolate with a spritz of Meyer lemon zest—why not?—from Canal House Cooks Every Day  

People Eating: Elio

I like pictures of beautiful food. I like beautiful pictures of food. But what is meant to happen to that food? Hopefully it will be eaten, enjoyed, appreciated; happily. This is something I want to start seeing more of. It should be an interesting challenge because who wants a picture of himself eating? I started […]

10,000 hours

Back in December, we spent two and a half crazy weeks developing and photographing 50 recipes for Food & Wine’s online site. It was actually fun, and the creative and physical challenge really inspired us, in that Malcolm Gladwell–10,000 hours sort of way. Food & Wine just started to post the recipes and photos to […]

(un)intentional

When Guy and I met, I remember being surprised by a collection of dried-up tea bags tacked up along one wall of his kitchen. A tiny art installation, made of an ordinary thing that I had thrown out thousands of time, turned lovely by focus… One of my favorite food photos that Guy ever took […]
